B3ta newsletter…

Always a good read (check it out here), but here’s some highlights from this weeks issue (issue 464 so, being a geeky thing, it mentions the Amstrad CPC464 a lot:

If Lord Sugar’s mum had named him Barry Alan Sugar and not Alan Michael then his company would have been the quite wonderful BASTRAD PLC

Heh…funny πŸ™‚

The CPC disk operating system was called Amsdos – a variation on the name of the more popular MSDOS. Should the 464 had lasted a few more years then maybe it could have run Amsdows.

That’s quite scary…

INTERESTING! PORNY BIRO ART – no idea who makes these but if any women end up dead with a blue biro shoved up their vagina then Dexter would finger this guy.

That’s just awesome…

Insulate your house. Inject a mixture of whipped egg white and sugar into the wall cavities and the loft. Turn the heating up to high. Hey presto: meringue insulation.

And here is the fabled CPC464 (I’ve still got one at home!)

Right, I’m off to Sweden – ciao πŸ™‚

Sunny weather = excellent!

Had my trip to Sweden – great place πŸ™‚ very friendly people (and incredibly sexy women), great food…only downside is the expensive beer.

But the women, oh my…

Too hot to type much else…maybe add to it later.

EDIT: OH yeah, forgot this:

It seems that when I’m abroad, I tend to blend in with the people – in Spain, people talk to me in Spanish thinking I’m Spanish, in France they speak to me in French. Now it seems all Swedes are very fit, healthy looking specimens, so I was somewhat bemused when people spoke to me in Swedish (hotel receptionist, airport staff), then came out with “Sorry – but you look Swedish.” πŸ™‚

Heh – I’m actually proud to be NOT recognised as a Brit when abroad…

A great weekend…

Kathy came down Friday (her birthday), so it saved me doing the 1.5 hour drive each way…

And so – took her for a meal Friday night – was very nice :). I even took her shopping in Cambridge on Saturday, AND Inever complained once (heh – earnt myself mucho brownie points there let me tell you…)

Another meal and a few drinks Saturday night, and onto Sunday…

Decided to goto the Royal Oak in Hail Weston for dinner – as Ewa (my lodger) was around, I asked if she wanted to come too. So off we all went.

Lovely meal (as always), couple of beers sat out in the garden – excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Within an hour of getting back home, I got a text from Harriett – she used to live in Hail Weston, and her mum still does. Anyhoo, her mum had popped round to Harriett’s to tell her that I’d been seen in the pub with TWO women…and neither of them were Harriett! Shock! Horror! other exclamationed (is that a real word?) remarks!

And now it’s Monday…but at least I’m in work…

Off to Sweden tomorrow with a night stopover there too – the U21 Championship final (England v Germany) is tonight though – bollocks.
